A selection of models from the architecture rooms of the V&A Museum in London. Not one is laser cut!
Landscape :) I just didn’t crop the edges on the images quite enough before uploading - hence the line!
Heyy, as important as presentation is, it is insignificant in comparison to the quality of the work. Just make sure to include a varied selection of work that shows off the full range of skills you have. No way to guarantee a place though!
My undergrad course was fairly artistic so good drawing and model making skills were essential. Although first year is pretty chilled so don’t worry about it too much :)
Ask a few of your friends to watch your crits to see where you are going wrong. It could be something as simple as talking too fast and the tutors not fully understanding your project.
Also, try and be consistent in the presentation of your work. Use Indesign to make sure all images are correctly spaced and titles are consistently placed to make your work appear more professional.
I hope this helps! Feel free to link me to some of your work and I can have a quick look at it :)
are you volunteering at the Biennale? which country do you represent? i applied but i didnt get in! haha :P
The British Council offered students from selected UK universities to take part in their fellowships programme. Essentially it is a one month work/study scholarship where you work in the British Pavilion at the Biennale as well as conducting your own individual research :)
Packing for London! Training for the Venice Biennale starts at midday, and I’m hoping I’ll get some design work done on the train there.
And for anyone in the US thinking of becoming an architect! ^
Thanks archstudentmind for the extra info!
It refers to the UK system of becoming an architect.
Part I is your bachelors degree (3 years) plus 1 year working in a practice, gaining experience.
Part 2 is your masters degree (2 years) plus another year working in practice.
Part 3 is your final qualifying examination where if you pass you become an Architect.
In total this is 7 years!
Interim Crit - Design for a Primary School
The key design element for the project was the distinctive roofline. This gives the building a clear, visual identity among the other, much larger buildings that surround it. Through the roofline runs a glazed ‘spine’, this connects the school to the adjoining library and its associated facilities.
